CAMO-BORED: The Bored Ape Yacht Club Teased A Pair Of Camo Items From Its Upcoming BAPE Collab!
The Bored Ape Yacht Club is feeling B-Ape-Ish after the BAYC shared a pair of camouflage items from its upcoming collaboration with A Bathing Ape that are anything but boring.
Traditionally, camouflage has been a colorway that's used to blend in and keep a low profile, but the BAYC and BAPE are reimagining this low-key print with their vibrant camo merchandise!
"Quality control,” the BAYC tweeted along with a photo of two items from its BAPE Collab. “Looking fresh out of the vault. Apes Together Strong.”
While we do not know whether these items are shirts, jackets, or pants, we do know that they feature both the BAYC and BAPE logos, exemplifying the idea of Apes Stronger Together!
At this time, it is unclear if these items are unisex or if one is for men and the other is for women. But, today's tease may be the community’s first look at female BAYC merch. Take a look at how the pink colorway from today’s photo compares to the pink colorway on BAPE’s recent ladies items.
As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, Yuga Labs’ Community lead, Spicy Tinaa, first announced that there would be female merch at ApeFest 2023, on August 17th.
“The teams been hard at work at some amazing merch designs,” Spicy Tinna said at the time. “And without giving too much away, ladies, there is finally something for us. Which is super exciting!”
Since the BAYC first announced its collaboration with BAPE on September 25th, the club has given Apes a couple sneak peaks of the merch!
“We’ve worked with BAPE to reimagine iconic designs from their deep archive, with one foot in their Ura-Harajuku roots and the other in the BAYC swamp,” Yuga Labs Co-Founder Garga explained in a blog post titled. TWO ICONIC APES, COOKING SOMETHING UP' in September. “This first collaboration is all about the community, where BAYC members and BAPE Heads receive exclusive early access to the apparel and accessories in the limited-edition collection. The collection makes its debut at ApeFest on November 4, where Apes can purchase onsite, or online with token-gated access. Then, it drops exclusively for BAPETAVERSE members online. Finally, in December the collection arrives at BAPE STORE® and BAPE.COM globally, where the public can access. “
The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to follow the BAYC’s BAPE collaboration and will bring you photos from the collection’s reveal at ApeFest 2023 on November 4th. Stay tuned for updates!
